Since the last update of Cryptomator to v1.5.8 on my Android 10 Motorola One Vision I get frequently asked to enter my Vault password even though I have Fingerprint unlock activated. I use OneDrive as the cloud service.
Once I have the Vault unlocked with the password I can unlock it with the fingerprint for a while. But if I don’t use the app for a few hours it asks me for the password again. Same happens if I force close the app then it requests the password too when I open the app again. I’m guessing this may be related to power saving on the phone?
In any case it did not happen before the last update so I assume something changed.
Is this expected behaviour or a bug?
I’ve already tried removing the vault and adding it again but still the same issue…
A handful of bugs reported, logs sent, and eager to help close bugs. A moderator has been kind enough to drop by some 3 times, and that’s it. We might be the only two active users right now. Not to dissuade you from participating, but I’m worn out holding my breath.
As it is, Cryptomator for android is not reliable. Exporting function is so delicate you’d be doing your future-self a service by not uploading anything.
Desktop clients work well and they’re free, everyone should continue using them exclusively.
Did I understand you correctly:
Once you have the Vault unlocked with the password and this vault is locked again you can unlock it with the fingerprint for a while but when it wasn’t unlocked before due to force close or long time not used the enter password dialog is displayed?
Can you please send us your log file after reproducing it?
Because currently we’re unable to reproduce the problem and the log file should bring some light into this topic.
